    These artificial leaves can convert carbon dioxide into fuel

    After much practice, scientists from the University of Illinois at Chicago have created artificial leaves that can convert atmospheric carbon dioxide to fuel ten times more efficiently than natural plants. Artificial leaves mimic the process whereby plants use water and carbon dioxide from the air to produce carbohydrates using energy from the Sun.

    China fails to control methane emissions liable to climate change nightmare

    The coal mines in China are continuously emitting methane gas despite of government limitations, a new study based on satellite data reveals. The news is a big concern as major emitters like China are failing to control the emission of such gasses which are responsible for drastic climate change scenes.

    Oceans warming faster than estimated, damaging marine life: Warn scientists

    This is indeed a warning signal that our eco system will soon see a downfall. Scientists on 10 January reports that the rising ocean temperature is damaging marine life and the temp record is setting a trend.

    IIT scientists create 'space fuel', may be next-gen energy source on Earth

    The scientists at IIT Madras have created 'space fuel' by simulating interstellar conditions in the lab, a method that may be used to convert atmospheric CO2 into a next generation energy source on Earth. The invention could help curb greenhouse gases as well as provide a new, sustainable source of energy. The research has been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

    Ocean temperature indicates shocking outcome: Study

    While global warming is a threat to our planet, the changing climate is also giving warning signals. The unexpected climate change is warming the world's ocean at faster pace, killing off aquatic organisms including coral reefs and marine forests. The warmer water is causing sea levels to rise, creating extreme weather events like hurricanes and likewise which affects the entire ecosystems.

    Japan launches Ibuki 2 to observe greenhouse gases

    With the aim to study greenhouse gases and their effects on the earth, Japan has launched a new satellite GOSAT-2. Also known as Ibuki-2, the satellite will survey carbon dioxide and other global warming gases with greater precision than its predecessor.

    India could reduce emissions by 2030: Study

    Individual city, region and company commitments in India could reduce emissions to 225-255 MtCO2e/year by 2030, more than the emissions generated by the country's industrial processes in 2014, a new international study said on Thursday.

    Permafrost carbon leak could peak within a few decades: Study

    Arctic permafrost's expected gradual thawing due to climate change and the associated influx of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere may actually happen within a few decades, much earlier than previously thought, warns a new NASA-funded study.

    Weather alarms highlight need to accelerate low-carbon economY

    With India too witnessing a change in its weather patterns, researchers believe climate change may not only challenge the country's conventional development pathways but also pose a serious threat to its economy.

    Earth is covered under 300,000 square miles of rivers and streams, satellite data reveals

    In a new discovery, the satellite data reveals unexplored rivers and streams which geologists never estimated before. The new estimate shows that, excluding land with glaciers, Earth is covered by just under 300,000 square miles of rivers and streams. That is more square footage than the state of Texas, and it’s as much as 44 percent higher than previous counts.
